Primanti Bros. sandwich re-creation...

Primanti Bros. Restaurant
Being from just outside Pittsburgh, my husband has quite a love for this place and more specifically, this sandwich (spicy capicola ham, provolone, fries, vinegar slaw, and tomatoes smooshed together on Italian bread) .  We attempted to re-create it this past Sunday to enjoy while watching the Steelers game.  I must say, we came pretty darn close.  We followed this recipe, but purchased fries in an effort to save time.  It is not at all healthy and is extremely messy to eat, but sure does taste good...assuming you like all of the ingredients.

Our masterpiece:

And my husband eating it:

Because I am such a good wifey (ha ha), I got this print for him many years ago for Valentine's Day, because of his love of that place and it's sandwiches:

He has it hanging in his office with all of his other Pittsburgh gear.  :)  See you in the Super Bowl, Steelers!  Wahoo!!

[I apologize for this post if you are not a fan of the Pittsburgh Steelers or big fat meat sandwiches.  :) ]

Those are so good! Messy, but good. We lived in Pittsburgh for three years and those are definitely a must. My husband is going to die when I show him the recipe. He will no doubt want to make them for the Super Bowl. We are also Steeler fans. :o) Nice work on the sandwich and getting the print, too! I may have to do this for my husband. He would love that.

Pittsburgh is one of the places on my to-visit list. When (not if, when:) we make it there, I will be stopping here *FOR sure.

(love that print!)
